The Energy of Money: A Spiritual Guide to Financial and Personal Fulfillment
By: Maria Nemeth
The Energy of Money: A Spiritual Guide to Financial and Personal Fulfillment, by Maria Nemeth, Ph.D., outlines a distinctly unique approach to one of the most dominant yet forbidden topics in modern society: money, and how we deal with it. A clinical psychologist who once lost $35,000 in a fraudulent investment scheme, Nemeth learned from that ordeal (and similar experiences of friends and associates) how most of us develop relationships with money, and the ways in which we subsequently can bring these in line with our actual dreams and realities. She initially used this knowledge to start a workshop called You and Money, which eventually attracted more than 4,500 participants and led to the development of concepts now delineated in this book.
Quoting relevant wisdom espoused by those ranging from Joseph Campbell and Ram Dass to Mark Twain and Dorothy Parker, Nemeth sets out “12 principles for personal fulfillment” designed to help readers “uncover the hidden landscape of beliefs, behavior patterns, and habits that underlie and sometimes subvert how you use money and other forms of energy.” The result is a refreshing, useful, and surprisingly accessible mixture of universal financial advice and the much rarer–but no less important–ethereal side of fiscal self-management.
Combining a complete self-help and self-discovery regimen with proven methods of money management, this powerhouse guide to prosperity presents twelve principles that will help you to
– Uncover the hidden landscape of beliefs, patterns, and habits that underlie and sometimes subvert your everyday use of money and personal resources
– Tame the dragons of driven behavior and busyholism
– Defuse fears of deprivation and scarcity
– Embrace and work through paradox and confusion
– Consciously focus your money energy
– Clear yourself to receive the energy and support of others and the universe
– Develop and stay on your personal path to abundance
Through easy-to-follow exercises and meditations, effective worksheets, and other interactive processes, Dr. Nemeth will guide you to financial success and help you manifest your special contribution to the world.
Way back, years before The Secret came out, by chance, I came across this brilliant book.
Written from more of a self-help perspective than a spiritual one, this book helped me to realize the emotions that come from our beliefs about money completely dictate whether we attract money or whether we repel it.
Two of the chapters, Scarcity Is One of Your Greatest Teachers and Releasing Old Beliefs Brings Miracles were life-changing for me after I read them (a few times!). Granted it’s not easy to release old beliefs, but you finally see that holding on to some of your beliefs may not be serving you–and may be the cause of constant financial struggle–just the awareness that it’s time to examine your beliefs about money is a good start to change.
Within the book, the author asks you to write a “money biography” detailing your financial highs and lows throughout your life. As you write, you really do begin to see influences and then patterns. It’s quite a powerful task to undertake.
Not only do I recommend this book, but I would suggest reading (or re-reading) The Science of Getting Rich and follow it up with this book. I think both books together will really help you to begin approaching money attracting with more confidence and clarity.
